talking about the mosque at ground zero, and obama wanting to bring terrorist into your own backyard. we under estimate the ability of a small group of radical republicans and their friends at fox news and conservative talk radio to really ratchet things up. i wish someone in the press would draw the parallel between president obama's inability to get congress to work on that issue, because he's right it makes better financial and security sense to close guantanamo, and to draw the parallel with immigration reform, and the trouble marco rubio is having getting republicans on board with the likes of fox news. >> michael: that's exactly right. the president spoke about the senate of where rubio serves and, quote, the habit of requiring 60 votes for even the most modest piece of legislation gumming up the works. that's what has happened. >> it's a full flection addiction at this point. i've been watching tweaking out on the senate floor for years now. every year they've been if the minority since they lost it in 2006, they have filibustered more than ever before. at this point every year we
